“History tells you lots about how things have changed over time. Just like when we did the Mayans. Chocolate has definitely changed. We got to have a chocolate workshop which was delicious!” – Jacob age 8
At Yavneh Primary, our aim is to engage the children’s interest and understanding about the life of people in the past. We aim to provide pupils with an appreciation and understanding on how the past has shaped our lives in the present. As historians, pupils are exposed to a rich and balanced curriculum that provides them with new vocabulary and knowledge. We aim to develop curious learners who can reflect on the past and make meaningful links.
Our history curriculum has been designed to cover all the skills, knowledge and understanding as set out in the national curriculum. The national curriculum states ‘A high-quality history education will help pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. It should inspire pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past.’ Our Curriculum focuses on providing pupils with the necessary skills to do this. It has been carefully organised into a model that outlines the skills, knowledge and vocabulary to be taught in a progressive and coherent way.
